Which toothbrush is best for me?

  2. 2. WHY IS TOOTHBRUSHING NECESSARY? - A toothbrush is the basis of all oral hygiene for the removal of biofilm (dental plaque) - Biofilm build-up favours the onset of: GingivitisCaries Periodontitis Mucositis and peri-implantitis Halitosis Maintaining good oral health is based on bacterial plaque control
  3. 3. TOOTHBRUSHING is the leading method for the removal of bacterial plaque (dental biofilm)  Proper brushing technique (video demo)  Proper quality toothbrushing THE IMPORTANCE OF BRUSHING
  4. 4. PARTS OF A TOOTHBRUSH HANDLE HEAD NECK  Joins the head and the gripping area  Improves brushing access  Gripping area: facilitates use and provides comfort  Ergonomic CAP  Prevents bacterial contamination  Openings: for quick drying and ventilation  Active part of the brush  Holds the filaments  Shape/size
  5. 5. VITIS BRUSHES  Diamond-shaped  Size that facilitates access to hard-to-reach areas  2 head types available • normal head • access head 2.7 cm 2 cm HEAD - Hard-to-reach areas - Small mouths - All brushing techniques - Greater sweeping surface
  6. 6. VITIS BRUSHES FILAMENTS  Function: to remove dental biofilm and food debris  Material: nylon high quality TYNEX®  Reduced water absorption  Increased sweeping capacity  Wavy, flat or v-shaped surface pattern depending on the model for different needs  Textured and end-rounded: protect gums and enamel  Monotip attack zone: stiffer filaments for increased disruption of biofilm
  7. 7. VITIS BRUSHES FILAMENTS Hardness level depends on: - Filament material - Filament and tuft density - Length of the filaments - Diameter of the tufts and of the filaments The hardness level of all VITIS brushes is controlled and suitable for each specific need These factors also affect the durability of the brush and its ability to remove oral biofilm
  8. 8. NECK VITIS BRUSHES HANDLE  Improves accessibility  Orients the head and its filaments  Flexible material: unbreakable and can be bent to the best position for each mouth  Ergonomic  Anti-slip gripping area: prevents slipping  Improves brushing hold CAP  Design with entry guide  Has openings: for quick drying and ventilation  Protects and isolates filaments from external contaminants
  9. 9. WHY REPLACE YOUR TOOTHBRUSH EVERY 3 MONTHS? It is advisable to replace your toothbrush every 3 months (or when filaments appear worn) because:  When brush filaments are damaged they become less effective  Worn filaments are an ideal medium for bacterial growth.
